The health and fitness industries are booming right now.

More and more people across the world are starting to realize how important it is to stay in good shape, for themselves and for their future. Whether it’s with diets, trendy technology or superfoods, there are more ways than ever to stay in shape.

This is especially true when considering movements like veganism, or other health movements that have flipped the status quo. Nowadays, things that were once associated with healthiness – like red meat or excessive weightlifting, for example- have been pushed to the side in favor of truly beneficial things, like plant-based diets, mental health care and yoga.

Some countries have been noted as being healthier than others, which is interesting. It shows that different kinds of people value different kinds of healthy practices, and that some countries still have a lot of work to do when it comes to keeping their citizens healthy.

Today, we’re going to be taking a look at Uganda- which has been noted to be the world’s fittest country. Here at Big Eye, we’re incredibly proud of our country and the progress that it has made in the fitness world, so we wanted to take a look at this in more depth on our blog and examine how Uganda has come to be so healthy.

How is Uganda the world’s fittest country?

As stated in this BBC article, Uganda was noted as the world’s most physically active country by the World Health Organization. This study was incredibly in-depth, and it tracked the physical activity of local people across the country. The findings showed that roughly 95% of Ugandan people were in good shape and sufficiently fit, which is great to see.

Will this continue into 2020?

It’s likely that we will continue to observe Uganda as being one of the fittest countries in the world as we move into 2020. Unless a sudden surge of fitspiration takes over other countries, it’s likely that Uganda will continue to foster a healthy community.

After all, one of the main reasons why Uganda is so healthy is that fitness is integrated into people’s daily routines, as this article points out. Many people have to commute a long way by foot or do a fair bit of manual labour at work, which is one of the main reasons why people in Uganda are in such great shape.

Manual work is an important part of fitness in Uganda. As there are less mechanized solutions to manual labour in areas such as agriculture, there is more manual work to be done. This encourages a higher level of fitness within the community.

According to Kate Huber at NJGamblingFun, who spent a semester abroad in Kampala in college, “Another reason why Ugandan people are in such great shape is that there’s a growing community of joggers. Nowadays, there are big groups of people heading out on almost a daily basis to go jogging. It’s a great source of cardio, and it’s also fantastic for socializing as it is helping to build a community.”

Generally speaking, Uganda is in fantastic shape- and we’re sure to see this continuing into 2020. This impressive level of fitness doesn’t mean that we won’t see other countries following suit, either. As we move further into the year, we’re sure to see more and more countries making waves in their own communities with fitness.

To sum up

It seems that the rest of the world has a lot to learn from Uganda. There are plenty of countries all around the world who don’t even come close to this country’s physical fitness.

There are so many physically fit and healthy people in the country, and it’s inspiring to see how active the community is. Whether it’s people staying active by commuting to work or getting involved with local sports and classes, there are so many Ugandan people who are in incredible physical shape.

It’ll be fascinating to see where the fitness industry goes in 2020. With introductions of products like CBD and unique lifestyles like veganism, we’re sure to see some incredible innovations in this world as the year progresses. This article shows how many great fitness gifts and tools are available on the market right now.

Uganda needs to wake up – Black Wall Street activist Charles N. Lambert ignites countrymen

By Reporter

The Black Wall Street Economic War activist Charles N. Lambert is not about to give up until Africa achieves economic independence.  He has penned an educative letter telling how Africans especially Ugandans can win the Economic War.

In the letter, Lambert called on Ugandans to wake and know that we are Africa. “We are one, the boundaries were created by Europeans and no African was there, let us put Africa first,” he said.  Below is the full letter;

“I offered economic wisdom to them but they said I was Nigerian and the wisdom must be fraudulent. I provided jobs for thousands of their youth but they said I was using them.

I built the largest call center in Africa in their country but every day they sent local police to harass people there.

The call Centre set up by Development Channel

I gave a platform for their celebrities to shine on African stage but they said they are the ones who made me.

I exalted their President and referred to his wisdom but they said I am using his name to support my criminal intentions.

I told them their country could be great but even their top most leaders said I should rather do that for my own country.

Uganda, this boundary you refer to was designed by White people living in Europe in a meeting and most of them had never even been to Africa and not a single African was in the meeting that created what you now call Uganda. We are one people, one continent, one destiny. Africa First,” Lambert penned.

Big Eye StarBoss Stuck In Ugx. 450Million Debt, Tears For Rescue

By BigEyeUg Team; In the face of being one of the most rewarded musicians by the President of Uganda for the past two years, Big Eye feels life is not worth to live.

Even not the recent 10 hybrid cows can console him back to his flamboyant lifestyle.

Apparently, struggling singer Ibrahim Mayanja aka Big Eye StarBoss is out of sorts after accumulating over Shs. 450Million in debts.

In a live Facebook video, the ‘Ndi Single’ singer has cried out his heart to the President of Uganda, H.E YK Museveni, fellow NRM members, and fans at large to redeem his current financial crisis that may ride him into jail.

The self-proclaimed ‘Star Boss’ says he purchased a residential house worth Shs. 460Million but he managed to make an initial deposit of Shs.60Million with hope of mending the balance in the shortest time possible.

On a sad note, all his plans were doomed earlier this year after being pelted with bottles as he was performing live on stage which pursued concert promoters to also shun his bookings.

After mounting unbearable pressure from the bank over the debts, Big Eye’s hopes drained and he resorted to selling his own car which has not also matched the debts to date.

Big Eye also says he has defaulted additional Shs.50Million as rent for the past 6months.

He also notes that he has a limited grace period to make the full payment for the house if he is not ready to lose even the initial deposit of Shs.60Million.

I am left with limited time to complete the house payment or else am likely to lose even the Shs. 60Million that I paid at first,” said Big Eye.

He further claims to have not received any payment from the NRM political party despite offering campaigning services for H.E YK Museveni in the 2010 and 2015 campaigns.

As usual, the singer is receiving severe controversy all over the media as majority ascertain him to be a ‘mere beggar’ who is often drawn to seeking public sympathy, a mark he seems not to be bothered with.
